Description

As a component of VISTA 2025 (Chester County's Economic Development strategy), the Urban Centers Forum is a call to action to the 16 urban centers to learn about and discuss fair housing, housing advocacy, housing tools, and development success stories. The Chester County Department of Community Development, Chester County Planning Commission, and the Chester County Economic Development Council host Urban Centers Forums to provide information and education to address challenges facing our urban centers as well as opportunities for open discussion, shared learning, and networking.
